ABOUT THIS JOURNAL

Journal Metrics

Usage
  • 5267Downloads 2018
    Springer measures the usage on the SpringerLink platform according to the COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.
  • 27 Usage Factor 2017/2018
    The Springer Journal Usage Factor 2017/18 was calculated as suggested by the COUNTER Code of Practice for Usage Factors. It is the median value of the number of downloads in 2017/18 for all articles published online in that particular journal during the same time period. The Usage Factor calculation is based on COUNTER-compliant usage data on the SpringerLink platform. (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.

Impact
  • 0.651 Impact Factor 2018
    Journal Impact Factors are published each summer by Thomson Reuters via Journal Citation Reports ®. Impact Factors and ranking data are presented for the preceding calendar year.
  • 0.81Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) 2018
    Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. The impact of a single citation is given higher value in subject areas where citations are less likely, and vice versa.
  • Q2Quartile: Materials Science (miscellaneous) 2018
    The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.
  • 0.35 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) 2018
    SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
  • 17H-Index 2018
    A journal has an H index of h if it published h papers each of which has been cited in other journals at least h times. Calculations are based on Scopus.

SCOPE

Journal of Superhard Materials  presents up-to-date results of basic and applied research on production, properties, and applications of superhard materials and related tools. It publishes the results of fundamental research on physicochemical processes of forming and growth of single-crystal, polycrystalline, and dispersed materials, diamond and diamond-like films; developments of methods for spontaneous and controlled synthesis of superhard materials and methods for static, explosive and epitaxial synthesis. The focus of the journal is large single crystals of synthetic diamonds; elite grinding powders and micron powders of synthetic diamonds and cubic boron nitride; polycrystalline and composite superhard materials based on diamond and cubic boron nitride; diamond and carbide tools for highly efficient metal-working, boring, stone-working, coal mining and geological exploration; articles of ceramic; polishing pastes for high-precision optics; precision lathes for diamond turning; technologies of precise machining of metals, glass, and ceramics. The journal covers all fundamental and technological aspects of synthesis, characterization, properties, devices and applications of these materials. The journal welcomes manuscripts from all countries in the English language.
